This adorable hoome is just 3 houses from the beach path on the ocean side of North Forest Beach. The house has been updated and has an open living area with high ceilings; the heart of this 4 bedroom, 2.5-bath home. This area in the center of the home has a fireplace, entertainment center and dining area that features a convenient pass-through window, with eat in counter to the kitchen.
A skylight makes the fully equipped updated kitchen a cheerful and bright work area. You can see the pool area from the kitchen window. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sunny bedroom and consisting of a twin over full bunkbed 1/2 bath. There is a deck off the back of the home, with a dining table and chairs for alfresco dining. The screened porch, with peeks of the ocean, opens off the master bedroom. This area is ideal for a morning cup of coffee while listening to the waves. The street is lined with a canopy of oak trees and is in a very quiet section of North Forest Beach.
This home also offers good bedroom separation. The master bedroom is on the left, with a King-size temper-pedic bed, a walk-in closet, private bath with tub/shower combo and access to the screened patio. To the right are 2 bedrooms with 1 Queen bed in each, both with sliders to outdoor decks. These bedrooms share a hall bath with a tulb/shower combo. The deck off the back bedroom overlooks the pool area. The fourth bedroom has a Twin over Full bunk and a 1/2 bath, overlooking the back yard and back deck.
In addition to all this, you and your family are only the the 4th house from the ocean and you have a view of the ocean from the screened in porch. Is is a very short walk to lovely North Forest Beach.
Forest Beach stretches along the Atlantic Ocean between Shipyard and Sea Pines Plantations. Bike paths and neighborhood lanes on North and South Forest Beach take you to Coligny Plaza, the hub of the Forest Beach area. While competing with the natural beauty and lure of the beach, the plaza offers a variety of shopping, dining, and fun entertainment for the whole family. All beach distances are measured from the center of the complex.
The pool has a 'sun bench' where kids can play and adults can sun while sitting in 6 inches of water. The pool is 27 ft x 14 ft with 5 ft of water in the deep end.

There isn't another place on Hilton Head Island quite like North Forest Beach. It was the first neighborhood to be developed and has maintained a laid back, casual feeling. The beach is not crowded as there are no condominiums or hotels nearby. You can put your car away and bike to the grocery at Coligny Plaza, less than a mile away. Our kids enjoy biking to the bakery every morning for a chocolate croissant . I love biking to the grocery and picking up fresh shrimp for dinner. Our evening walks on the beach are a wonderful way to close out a perfect vacation day.
We just returned from a week on Hilton Head Island where we stayed at this cozy beach house. We absolutely loved it...it was perfect...just what we were hoping for! As the description says, it is literally 4 houses down from the beach/ocean. Each morning, we ate breakfast on the screened in porch where you can see and hear the ocean and then we'd go for our morning beach walk. It is very convenient if you have children who like to play/swim at the beach, because it's right there over the sand dunes. Also, an added perk, the house has an outdoor shower so you don't track sand into the house. If you have teenagers, they'll think it's very cool. The house also has two bathrooms...both with full showers. So, even with a bunch of girls, we had no problem getting ready in the morning. The house has a tv in the back sunroom off the kitchen and also one in the great room, which was another perk so the adults and kids could be watching their own shows. There is plenty of seating for meals. Big kitchen table, patio set on the back porch, and a small table for two in the screened in porch. We enjoyed several meals at the house (backyard grill is included) and also found some wonderful restaurants on the island. The house is located in a lovely area with many beautiful beach houses. It is near the beach, Coligny shopping center/grocery store, and the main street that takes you all around the island. You simply can't go wrong with this house. We hope to return soon!
This house was smaller than we're use to but had everything we needed. It was very close to the beach and you could catch a glimmer of the ocean from the screened in porch. Bedrooms were roomy and all had T.V.'s. The 4th bedroom needs a shower and twin beds instead of bunkbeds. Or one of the bedrooms could have used twin beds . Our Family comes with 2 adult males that shared that 4th bedroom and it just didn't work for them. The house was clean except for the screened in porch and all the amenities were there for us. We had to replace the propane tank for the outdoor grill and I informed Dawn Murphy to get reimbursed for the cost.
The kitchen had all the necessities and we used it every day, there were times when we could have used another fridge, but that's just us. We ate together around the dining table every night and enjoyed family time together. We watched the Olympics in the roomy livingroom., and sat on the screened in porch if we wanted some quiet time.
The heat was pretty bad the week were there and we really appreciated the new swimming pool. There were plenty of places to sit or lounge and the shade from the trees made it bearable.
We were handy to Coligny plazza and made a trip to the ice cream store at night. The many stores were fun to shop at for souvenirs and bring as many reminders of our trip home. My grandkids really enjoyed everything about vacation and its always good to watch the next generation experience the things you taught their parents.
All in all we have a good time here and I would recommend it to family or friends.
A fabulous week. We have stayed all over North Forest Beach and have already booked this home for next year. A wonderful, comfortable home, it has everything you need. The management firm were fabulous also, Dawn is wonderful, very efficient, everything from the booking to a small maintenance issue was handled promptly. Thank you so much!!
Our family of four had an absolutely perfect one week vacation! The house and location were perfect; very short walk to the beach. The beach was wonderful - very big and no large crowds - definitely felt like your own private beach. The house has everything we could have wanted - four big bedrooms and nice 'great room'. The linens and bedding were very comfortable. We really appreciated the keyless lock - No worries about loosing key at beach! The private pool was a perfect place to spend our afternoons, after the beach. The pool also has lights which made for nice night time swimming. The outdoor shower was super convenient. We also loved biking (Billy's Biking) and enjoyed how close we were to shopping (Coligny Plaza). Hilton Head has a lot of great restaurants - our favorites were Skull Creek Boat House, Hudsons, and a very close restaurant with fabulous breakfast - Skillets. We also made a lifetime memory at Lawton Stable in Sea Pines, when we rode horses for the first time ever! We will return for sure! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
We've been going to Hilton Head for years and can only speak highly of this Beach House. In 2014 we stayed here for 2 months. We just loved the house. Very comfortable and nicely furnished. Nicely landscaped with ample parking. The pool is gorgeous! The rooms are spacious and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The beds are extremely comfortable and of good size which was important to us. The house is nicely laid out and full of light with bedrooms off each side of the great room. Very quiet location and just steps away from the most beautiful beach.
First time in Hilton Head. Absolutely loved it. House was perfect for family of four. Spent tons of quality time at the pool area. Partial shade but plenty of sun. We loved the location. Walked daily to shops and restaurants. Walk to beach was short and painless. House had all amenities needed and had a real beach feel. Spent many evenings on screened in porch. Fourth of July celebration something to behold. Plan to return next year.
Excellent location, easy walk to the beach with our 3 preschool children. Rented bikes for the week which were dropped off at the house. Very convenient to lots of shopping, restaurants, Coligny plaza. Beaches were the best that we have experienced in the Carolinas. Owner was very easy to work with, helpful throughout the stay. Very clean and well maintained property. Spent a lot of time at Sea Pines which is an easy drive or longer bike ride but lots of bike trails make navigating the island easy. This is a great rental for families with young children as it is one floor so no stairs to worry about. Have all of the beach toys/chairs etc so no need to cart them along with you from home. And having the outdoor shower with hot water was great for washing off after the beach. Only recommendation would be getting some more everyday dishes as we ate many meals at the house and seemed to run out easily. Overall I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a central location but a beach that is not overly busy! Thanks so much Bonnie!
Just a short bike ride away are the shops and restaurants of Coligny Plaza, Beach Market Shops, Heritage Plaza and Circle Center. For a little bit of fun, play miniature golf or enjoy the areas bike paths. You won't even need a car, with all the family-friendly entertainment in the immediate area.
